The 2023 version of the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) is almost here, and you’ll be able to see some of it from the comfort of your own home.CES is looming — it takes place the first week of January — so while it’s tempting to just sleep off the effects of the holiday season, it’s probably best to plan out a viewing schedule now. Unfortunately, CES isn’t something that any average person can just watch in its entirety. You can see some, but not all, of the action from home. To be more specific, CES is full of keynotes from major players in the tech business, but in order to see everything, you need to register on the CES website. Registration is limited to people in the tech biz, so average Joes are locked out. That means you’re stuck watching whichever keynotes companies decide to livestream themselves, and that’s a bit trickier.
For example, Samsung, Sony, and AMD are all livestreaming their CES keynotes. Here’s how to catch those:
Samsung: 5 p.m. ET on Jan. 4 on the Samsung Newsroom website
Sony: 8 p.m. ET on Jan. 4 on YouTube
AMD: 9:30 p.m. ET on Jan. 4 on the AMD website
As for other companies you may be interested in, a quick Google search or visit to their website should help find out if they have a CES event you can watch from the comfort of your couch. While it’s not ideal that regular folks can’t see every bit of CES from home, just be glad you’re not working feverishly for a week straight in a Las Vegas convention hall.
